Republican Patriots Appeal to Uphold the Second Amendment

We the people, active members of the North Carolina Republican Party, are gravely concerned with elements of the proposed legislation supported by Senators Thom Tillis and Richard Burr which will impose new infringements upon the Second Amendment – those enumerated rights which provide that “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Our Second Amendment rights are crystal clear, and we expect our elected representatives to uphold their oath to protect these God-given rights, rather than trampling on them.

Current events require great fortitude and a focus on real crises demanding attention. Across the nation, rampant inflation is hurting working families, there is talk of food and fuel shortages, and an imminent recession may inflict further damage on small businesses and the economy. Moreover, the southern border is being invaded while Democrat district attorneys are releasing violent criminals into the streets. Every day, the most vulnerable in our cities are ravaged by endless violence. 

In the face of this chaos, our senators must resist the impulse to respond hastily to the Uvalde school shooting by compromising on constitutional principles. The gun control portion of the proposal is fundamentally flawed for the following reasons, and must therefore be rejected:

“Red flag laws” in the form of crisis intervention programs violate the right to due process, as a pre-crime punishment of people not adjudicated guilty. There is little evidence to demonstrate the effectiveness of such laws and Republicans should play no part in allocating federal taxpayer funds because of the potential for abuse by state and local prosecutors, law enforcement, and political opponents.  We would be far better served by enforcement of existing laws and regulations to remove guns from persons making real threats.  

Waiting periods on gun purchases have not been shown to eliminate or reduce gun crime, and they potentially harm persons who may need to acquire the means of self-defense in emergencies, such as riots or domestic violence. 

Each incremental legislative limitation on the Second Amendment represents one more step towards eliminating it. 

All gun control is a violation of the Second Amendment and our God-given rights to self-defense.

The right to keep and bear arms, enshrined in the Second Amendment, serves as the ultimate counter to tyrannical government overreach. We must bravely resist policies that endanger those rights and liberties in exchange for the delusory promise of safety. 

In conclusion, we reject the proposed bipartisan gun control legislation, and we urge Senators Tillis and Burr to focus their time and attention on far more important and enduring solutions to protect and promote the health, safety, and prosperity of the citizens of our great state and nation.
